A note to say thank you very much for your recent hard work with [name] and I.
It is good to know that we can now look forward to 2011 in the

Managing Director. Somerset
With several staff seemingly in the wrong job and no clear direction for the business, we recognised the need to change.
We found Paul Munnery from Stewart Nash to be an absolute Godsend
to our business. He is very personable and wise man that we instantly
liked, but he is also very experienced in all areas of running an
Within a remarkably short time he managed to get all three
directors, for the first time since we started the business, focused in
the same direction and working on tasks that have proved
transformational for our business.
His experience is wide ranging and all-encompassing. He very
quickly assessed our staff, identified their strong points, determined
where their skills could best be utilised within the company then helped
us to make a few changes.
As an example, he quickly identified that we had been
undervaluing the cost of our production department and that we didn’t
have a sufficiently keen eye on generating profits. Both problems have
since been satisfactorily remedied.
I’d like to say how much we appreciated the time and expertise provided by Paul Munnery from Stewart Nash.
During the past three weeks, we have been delighted with the very
professional and helpful advice given by Paul in assisting us with the
restructuring of our company along with development and planning for
future profitable growth.
We found Paul delightful to deal with, very equipped to deal with
the task, sensitive with all members of staff he dealt with, successful
in giving us a renewed and greater focus as to our present structure
and how it will now be altered very much for the better to improve our
Paul has been an excellent business coach and I have no
hesitation in recommending Stewart Nash Consultancy to other businesses
that need coaching to help plan for growth and achieve their potential.
Managing Director. Devon.
I have had the pleasure of working with Paul on a project for our
business and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Paul to any
company director. He is very easy to work with, has an objective
viewpoint. His manner of working is very effective, he is knowledgeable
about how a business operates, highly focused on delivering results and
has provided good value for money.
The project Paul was involved with was to help us better describe
and sell our software product. Software can be very difficult to
explain, particularly as it is an intangible concept. Paul really did
help us to further the explanation of our product and put it in terms
that any prospective buyer can understand. As the software designers, we
found this particularly difficult as we kept falling into the trap of
using a technical description – one that other developers may
understand, but that would leave our prospective clients none the wiser.
Paul really focused us on putting together a ‘sales’ orientated
approach to the marketplace, as opposed to the technical approach we had
adopted. Customers now understand what we provide and the benefits to
As well as the practical help Paul supplied, he also passed on a
lot of his knowledge by coaching us and we still refer to him today when
compiling documentation. I have no hesitation in recommending Paul
Managing Director. Devon.
We have employed Stewart Nash Consultancy over the past six months to help us prepare the business for growth.
Paul has helped us re-think the roles and responsibilities of all
our staff including the directors. With each member of staff now
properly trained, having a clear understanding of their role in the
business and pulling together as a team, we have seen our business grow
at an exceptional rate in the past few months.
We all found Paul to be professional, task orientated and highly
motivating. He has taught us new skills and helped us put the business
on a development path that we would not have taken without his help.
We can highly recommend Paul to any company that needs
professional coaching & assistance to help prepare the business for
growth and then ongoing mentoring to make sure the plan is delivered!
We have been working with Paul over the past two months to help
us better understand and manage the company. Paul identified the need
to manage the operational element of the business differently and has
helped me to understand how to grow the business with a focus on gross
profits and making the business easier to manage.
Paul understood the complexities of our business very quickly and
identified the key issues around how I might overcome some business and
people-related problems. Paul has helped me put new, practical
management processes in place and make objective, difficult business
decisions to resolve business problems.
Paul challenged many of my business assumptions that pushed me to
re-think several aspects of the business, which with hindsight, has
been crucial to our continued success. I appreciate the way in which he
has taught me new skills.
Paul has a practical, hands-on approach and has worked in the
businesses alongside me. His approach has helped me enormously. I
recommend Paul to any busy Managing Director needing to develop their
business to the next stage.

It was our pleasure to have the assistance of Paul Munnery from
Stewart Nash Consultancy to help us streamline how we run our business.
We had been running our business without effective processes or systems
in place and in a somewhat disorganised way. We now run our business
efficiently and far more effectively than before, focusing on satisfying
customer needs at every opportunity and business profitability at every
Paul coached us and helped us to prepare the business for a
period of substantial growth over the coming nine months or so,
including putting in place supplier and customer contracts. We now have
plans and strategies in place for all key parts of the business –
marketing, staff, sales, manufacturing, service, etc. and are now
confident that our business can be more successful and profitable in
future, in part because we have a clear direction for the business and
clearly understand the tasks we have to carry out.
Paul is very personable, clearly extremely knowledgeable about
how to grow a business and hands-on in the way he has supported and
coached us. Frankly, his help has been invaluable to our business. For
anyone considering using his services we would highly recommend him.
